Beyond Infinity

An immersive journey through painting and space and a piece of experimental filmmaking, Beyond Infinity mixes visual abstraction, a haunting musical score by musicians Nazar Rybak, Jack White and Jon Wright, and 360 degree projection to take the viewer beyond the boundaries of the cosmos into the parallel world of artistic creation.

Bringing together cosmology, painting and cutting-edge fulldome cinematic technology, the film reflects on the physical universe, its dark side, and the world of imagination, focusing on the pictorial act and the formation of physical structures. It brings painting into full-dome cinema to challenge and push the traditional usage of the two media.

Director Statement

Beyond Infinity is a journey into the dark side of the cosmos, a place where imagination and existence come together. Nature, like painting, is a work of art. This film wants to explore the relationship between the two and takes the viewer on a journey into the meaning of existence, the universe and human creativity.
